Hi--Got to Fla yesterday--what I've seen so far they can give it back to the Seminoles. Awful [?] from "Betsy" in La. and Miss. So far like Ala. best. Going on to the coast today to visit friends. The Miss. R [sic] and Gulf of Mex [sic] are really something. Hope everything O.K. with you and 296. More later. Amie Rose
